We had a wonderful time in Tibet. We have learned a lot about this unique destination because of the wonderful guide Degyi who is so knowledge and always available towards our tours. We stayed at the Shangri-La Hotel Lhasa, and we would never imagine a Tibet travel could be so nice and amazing without the help of Degyi.

Also, thanks a lot to our Tibetan driver Mr.Wongdun for his safe driving and a good sense of service along the way.

We shall return Tibet in the near future!

Meili Snow MountainMeili Snow Mountain (Meili Xueshan), also called Kawakarpo, is part of a UNESCO nature site located in Deqin County dividing Yunnan from Tibet, a wonderful place to hike and explore both nature and Tibetan culture.

Rising between the Salween River and the Mekong River in the extreme edge of Northwest Yunnan, the Meili Snow Mount region is part of Three Parallel Rivers of Yunnan Protected Areas, which as a whole was described into the UNESO World Heritage in January 2008. Legend says that the Meili Snow Mountain is a god guarding Tibetan Buddhism. With 13 peaks over 6000m in the range, the main peak Kawa Karpo ("Kawagebo" in Chinese) is a sharp snow mountain with an altitude of 6740m, which has never been conquered yet. The Kawa Karpo (6740M) - the highest peak of Meili, is one of the most sacred mountains of Tibetan Buddhism. Local pilgrims circumambulate Kawa Karpo every year. A Kora in the Year of Sheep (once every 12 years) is a special fortune-hunting pilgrimage for Tibetans. A panorama view of Meili Snow Range - Yingbintai (Guests Greeting Terrace) is the best point to overlook the range. Besides the Kawa Karpo, the more beautiful peak to the south is the 6054m high Miancimu. Sunrise at Meili Mt. shouldn't be missed. Sacred Waterfall in Yubeng - formed by the snow melting from Kawa Karpo, represents the compassionate tears of Buddha, flowing over a granite cliff just below one of many glaciers. Mingyong Glacier - the southernmost modern glacier in China. Originating from Kawa Karpo and dropping to an elevation of 2650m off the east face of Kawa Karpo.12km in length. Crystal-clear and sparkling, the ice makes its way very slowly from high on the peak down to the Mingyongcun Forest at 2,700 meters. It is considered to be the world's finest monsoon glacier and remarkable for its descent to such a low altitude.
